And All I Got Was Royalties on a This T-Shirt

June 26th, 2011 by skippy

Michael Z Williamson has licensed Skippy’s List and is selling t-shirts on his retail site, Cloak & Dagger. So if you’ve ever wanted a piece of clothing that earns you instant respect with all members of the military, protects against weasel attacks, and effectively triples your sexual charisma simply by touching it*, then you need to go to his site right now and buy one. If you buy five, Michael will make a character based off of you in his next novel.**  If you buy ten, he’ll give your character a sex scene.***

*Claims expressed here as to the about the t-shirt’s powers have not ever been successfully tested.  Especially the sexual charisma part.

**Note: I did not run this idea past Mike in any way shape or form. He might, in fact, be really mad at me for this.

*** Ditto. It should be noted that you should probably not do this sort of thing to a writer who also has a knife and gun accessory store unless you are a professional smart ass and happen to live really far away from him.

    I don’t guarantee the character will actually appear other than as some dude in the background.

    I don’t guarantee the sex scene will be with another person.

    So, what you’re saying is, if I buy 10 of these shirts I’ll be some random wanking off in the background?

    What if a lot of us do this? Will you put in a chapter at the end for all the people on skippy’s list and just say (or write) “(insert name here) is wanking in the background.” like 954 times?

    Nah, goats might be involved. Or acid-excreting aliens. Or someone might develop a fetish for fire ants. So many choices…


    timbo reply on June 27th, 2011 8:26 am:

    Will the ants, alien and/or goat have read hair? It makes a real difference to me.

    Michael Z. Williamson reply on June 27th, 2011 9:15 am:

    I don’t know. How does one read hair? Is it like reading bumps on the head?

    Catherine reply on June 27th, 2011 10:34 am:

    How about a threesome with a goat and an acid-spitting alien on top of a nest of fire ants? Because that would be hot.

    Black Skippy’s List t-shirts. o_o

    Why do I have to be unemployed right now? ;_;


    Susan reply on June 27th, 2011 10:14 pm:

    Also unemployed. But I might buy 10 if I could have a sex scene with Methos from Highlander. Make that Duncan and Methos both while you’re at it. And real participation, not just me watching!


    Susan reply on June 27th, 2011 10:15 pm:

    Oh, wait, I have a thought. I could buy the T-shirts as everybody’s Christmas present this year!

    thanks skippy. I needed that its been one of those IT weeks from hell. but what we now need is one of those shirts made as a bowling shirt or a dressyish work shirt so I can wear it to work.


    Michael Z. Williamson reply on June 28th, 2011 4:41 pm:

    I can do one as a collared polo shirt for a little extra. Email me.

    Why won’t my work allow me to view a website called sharppointythings.com? Seriously, what kind of shenanigans do they think I’m going to do?

    this fight on school prtporey had nothing to do with the nooses, although that added to racial tension as the children were not expelled, and they should have been.3) Two of the Jena 6 were in a fight off school prtporey when trying to crash a party (which had blacks) just not them…it was invitation only. They were asked to leave and when they did not a group of white guys went outside and fought them.4) A little while later there was a fight with a few white people (one who was at the party) and one of the Jena 6 people (reportedly) outside a convenience store, Gotta Go.5) Bell was friends with some of the folks who got in a fight and thought the white kid they jumped, knocked unconscious, and then repeatedly stomped was involved in one of the previous fights and had taunted them. IT was not the same guy. The guy who was stomped was not involved.Now the victim was no angel either, as he was kicked out of school for a little while for bringing a hunting rifle on school grounds the year before, but there is no evidence he was involved in any noose hanging, racial fights, etc. It was a case of mistaken identity.5) The prosecutors was wrong to charge them as an adult for second degree battery (which was reduced from attempted murder, however Bell’s attorney was black and the jury was only white because the jury pool was white…BECAUSE blacks did not show up for jury duty. 6) My conclusion: I feel these kids got railroaded but I also think due to the seriousness of the crime the kids should have been charged with something, but as juvaniles…Bell deserves to be in jail but not for the time he got.Also the prosecutor is still charging the other kids.7) Feds came in and investigated and concluded that there was no direct connection to the nooses and the fight involving the Jena 6, in fact on campus there had been no racial incident in the time in between (which I believe was about 3 months).I think that although this case reveals racial bias, I am sad that these kids (who I consider thugs) are the poster children for it. Reality is most black and white kids in the town were not fighting anyone. Things were chill for most people although there might have been tension.All of these kids who were involved in all this fighting (but for the victim I mentioned who was not involved) consider thugs…sorry.yes, like Nsagoma asked, I wonder where their parents (plural) were.
